Director Ridley Scott’s Prometheus was met with mixed fanfare. But it’s undeniable that it was a horrifically cinematic beauty. A group went out into deep space in search of answers — and learned a nightmarish and vague answer by the Engineers — who ultimately created life on earth — and wanted to end it.
The means of ending humanity was another nightmare from the Engineers. A biological weapon that is familiar to a lot of us: Xenomorphs. Otherwise known simply as aliens in — yes, Alien, the creatures were made to completely wipe out a species. Their severely limited lifespan means they’d die off as well, leaving behind a clean slate for new life.
Fortunately, according to Scott, we won’t see xenomorphs in the sequel of Prometheus. It’s safe to say they won’t serve a purpose in the story. As for the viewer, we saw them in so many movies already. We’ve already seen the horrors and violence they inflict. Scott wants to focus more on the Engineers, who are still a mystery.
It’s a good direction. The unknown is always more terrifying.
“Right now, as we speak, it’s being written. I’ve had 15 drafts evolving. I definitely want to do that again because I really enjoyed doing Prometheus.”
That’s good to hear. I really enjoyed watching Prometheus. And more Michael Fassbender androids, the better.
